#ThursdayWriteUp 12 – MeNoTimeFo NaNoWriMo :(

I’m such a slacker.

Well, when it comes to proving my absolute dedication to social media and blogging lately. Aside from this post – Blissful Moments – #532 – I’ve been almost non-existent on the internet going on two months now and, though I miss interacting with many of the wonderful people, I’m not feeling too bad about it. To clarify, I’ll give you another one of my bullet lists.

    I don’t feel bad about being scarce on the Internet lately because:

    • I’ve accomplished much more in the last two months than any other THREE months in 2012.
    • That’s all. I just feel that it takes at least two points to make a bullet list. Yeah, I’m one of “those”.

I know, I know… I’m missing the whole point of having a “platform” in the digital world these days, right? Actually, I’m not. I’m simply not missing the point of having something worthwhile to place on that platform.

Which brings me to my #ThursdayWriteUp for this past week month.

I signed up for NaNoWriMo this year and gave it a go… for a day or two. It’s probably best I wait until I can schedule enough time for that commitment. I don’t think it’s too tough to write 50,000 words in a month if that’s the only thing you’re doing. I’m pretty sure I reach that word count almost every month anyway if you count ALL things written. Trying to tap out an extra 50,000 words during an already busy month – YIKES! My hat’s off to those who did! That is no small accomplishment.

That said, I’ve spent plenty of time on my three active fiction works and have even started some scrap paper notes on possible future works. In all, I’ve more than exceeded a 50k word count for November 2012, so all is not lost! πŸ˜‰

I’ve also accomplished much in the musical realm. I’m looking forward to sharing some of that with you in the near future.

Stuffed between all that I’ve been doing the usual – building furniture, traveling a bit, enjoying family & friends, getting ready for and enjoying the holidays and, yes, feeding the cat.

I don’t see my off-line schedule letting up much until after the end of the year but I promise I will try to pop in and say hi to everyone at least once or twice before 2013 arrives.

If for some reason I don’t make it it back to the digital world until then… Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Season’s Greetings and HAPPY NEW YEAR to all! πŸ˜€

What was your week like?

  1. Sounds like you’re having a productive month πŸ™‚ I’m pretty much addicted to the internet, so couldn’t be scarce for a month πŸ˜‰ It’s good to hear from you.

    I also “failed” NaNoWriMo, in that I didn’t write 50k on the project I started for it, but I did write 50k overall in November across that and Reaper’s Rhythm. This week has been crazy busy, as it’s school play week and that means lots of extra hours at work. Lots and lots and lots! I’m still managing to squeeze in writing time, but need to dedicate some time to my reading/critiquing commitments in the coming week.
